We present here the application of a model for a mass circulation mechanism induced by the stellar magnetic field to study peculiar aspects of AGB star nucleosynthesis. The mixing scheme is based on a previously suggested magnetic-buoyancy process [1, 2] and here shown to account adequately for the formation of the 13C neutron source for s-processes. In particular our analysis results are focused on addressing the constrains to AGB nucleosynthesis coming from the isotopic composition of presolar grains recovered in meteorites. It turns out that n-captures driven by the magnetically-induced mixing can account for the isotopic abundance ratios of s-elements recorded.
